In the afternoon, Beau called to let me know there was a brush fire over on E16, moving fast but headed away from us. The country version of neighborhood watch works well up here. It certainly helps to get a heads-up. Cam came up and we sat out on the deck to see the column of smoke and watch the spotter and dump planes circling. She'd tried to go to the post office, but law enforcement had closed the road. They seemed to get the fire under control pretty fast.
As we left the barn, Beau said he's definitely going to get a milking machine.
